WISER and the Gateway Medical Society Hold First Day of Journey To Medicine Program
WISER and the Gateway Medical Society Hold First Day of Journey To Medicine Program

WISER and the Gateway Medical Society, a component of the National Medical Association whose objectives are to promote the science and art of medicine and the betterment of public health, have jointly developed a seven month program that is designed to address the growing need for minorities in the field of medicine. The program is titled Journey to Medicine. Each month, selected students will learn about various specialties in medicine and then have the opportunity to participate in simulation-based exercises to treat simulated patients. Topics include anesthesiology, emergency medicine, surgery, and code teams. The first session was an interactive workshop on simulation and how WISER uses simulation-based manikins to train individuals from all different healthcare professions.
